|Abbot of Ripon|
|Major shrine||Ripon and Peterborough|
Botwine (died 785 or 786) was a Northumbriaa saint venerated at Ripon and Peterborough. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recension E, recorded his death in the 780s (probably for 786) in one of three Ripon abbatial obits derived from a chronicle of Northumbrian origin.
The late 10th- and early 11th-century writer Byrhtferth of Ramsey in his Vita sancti Oswaldi claimed that Oswald of Worcester, Archbishop of York, discovered Botwine's relics at the monastery of Ripon (along with those of other early Ripon abbots) and encased them in a new shrine, an account described by historian Michael Lapidge as "problematical" on other points. It is known that in the 12th-century Peterborough Abbey also possessed some relics of Botwine.
